About Me

I am passionate about storytelling, designing for diversity, web accessibility, and continuous learning. Through my work, I strive to build on my skills as a visual communicator, interaction designer, and digital content creator to have a positive effect on people's lives. 

I hope to further develop my media production skills, travel the world, and one day return to the ocean to SCUBA dive to film and edit a documentary about the life below the surface. In my free time, I enjoy writing, traveling to quirky roadside attractions, yoga, attending concerts, watching movies, biking, hiking, photography/video production, learning about cephalopods, and spending time with my friends/family.
